"True 2-bedroom, 1 bath apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Beautiful full-service prewar building. Half a block from Central Park and the lovely East Meadow along Museum Mile, this Carnegie Hill gem has beautiful views of the tree tops and the magnificent St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral with its beautiful onion domes. The reservoir is nearby, as are playgrounds, jogging paths, ball fields and tennis courts. Wonderfully functional kitchen, ready for your updates, opens to the windowed dining area, providing the open-kitchen option so popular today. The bedrooms are on a private hall with bath, nicely separated from the living and dining areas. Hardwood floors. Beamed ceilings. Bright all day. Laundry, bike room, common storage room with individually designated storage spaces and full-time doormen. Pets and washers and dryers permitted. 12 East 97th Street is a great place to call home!"
